Girl’s Hockey

A has been doing some hockey clinics that are designed for girls only. The state and hockey in general is trying to encourage more girls to try hockey, because for whatever reason, girls hockey, and maybe hockey in general, is dropping off. Hockey is a bit of a commitment, but is it ever fun, and A has been enjoying it. So much so that she wants to keep going back. Usually she burns out a little and wants to take a break, but she’s been enthusiastic about these clinics. They work them hard, too. It’s not just fun and games, they learn serious skills and the instructor doesn’t coddle them. It’s good sound hockey, and I keep thinking N should join in because he’d benefit from a little practice.

I think part of what A enjoys about it hanging with the other girls, some of whom she’ll be playing with in the winter. In fact, there is definitely social potential in there, and I know some of the other girls and they are nice. Plus, they get to bond over hockey.

Whatever be the case, A is having fun and enjoying it, and thus far she hasn’t lost her enthusiasm. That’s all that matters, in the end.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Big Swede Guy for the pic.
